We had not been on a Princess cruise in three years due to work demands. We planned this cruise far in advance in honor of our 40th anniversary. The improvements were evident in every aspect of the cruise. Food: (We are vegetarians who ... Read more

Main reason, PRICE. Age range of passengers, 75 to 90. Food, going down hill from past Princess cruises. Menus repeated every 4 days and very boring. Lots of sick passengers spreading disease to others. Rough seas every day. Many ... Read more

We were in cabin A701, and it was a great location. Attila, from Hungary, was probably our best room steward, ever! Our cabin was close to the aft elevator; walk directly aft on 12-Aloha deck, go thru a door, and you're at an outdoor ... Read more

This was my 14th cruise with Princess. The last one was on the Royal, which is one of the newer ships. In contrast, the Star Princess is really beginning to show its age although the service was consistently outstanding. It is a disservice ... Read more

I found everything to be really excellent. The food was always great and the shows and other activities were a real pleasure to watch. I thought that dollar for dollar value was really there and think that you get a lot for the money. ... Read more

We love this cruise being from Los Angeles No Flights are needed to get to and from the ship. My wife needed a wheel chair to get from the car to our cabin. Wheel chair service for embarkation was very POOR. However, it should be noted ... Read more

We had a great time, experience-wise on this cruise, despite the condition of the ship. Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and timely. The shuttles, porters, and other shore-side staff were wonderfully helpful on both ends. ... Read more

Some people may think that we like to live dangerously, but we flew into Los Angeles on the same day that we set sail for Hawaii. Our flight arrived at 10:30am and with a pre-booked shuttle to San Pedro, we found ourselves able to embark ... Read more

My son and I went with my mom and one of my sisters. Embarkation went well; we explored the ship and it looked very nice, though there were about 5 elevators out of order when we left port and at least a couple still out or that went out ... Read more

More sea than Hawaii on this cruise but we were aware of that. We were looking for a cruise where we could leave from a car approachable pier and arrive back to that same pier. Also looked for a cruise where we could come and go on sea ... Read more

Let me first say that Princess is normally a great line to cruise on. This was my eighth cruise on Princess and the first time I have really been disappointed with the cruise. We had a mid-ship balcony room and the balcony appeared to ... Read more

We were pleasantly pleased by this cruise and the Star Princess. My wife and I traveled with two children aged 6 and 8. One with a casted up broken arm. The kids had a blast, wanting to stay on board during the port days to be part of the ... Read more

We live in greater Los Angeles so no touring there, just drove to a local hotel and parked our car. By the way, I do not recommend the Crowne Plaza San Pedro even though they have a stay and sail program with free parking with one night ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go snorkeling in the Sea of Cortez. We found a wonderful price deal and stayed with the lowest prince - an interior cabin on an upper deck. Both embarkation and disembarkation were fast and ... Read more

I wrote an earlier review of a cruise on the Star one month previous to this one. I had mixed feelings on that first coastal cruise, but this Mexico cruise was much better. There were still some concerns I suppose it could have been a ... Read more
